Cheers to Another Great Year!

Today I have a gift set to share with you...a hand painted wine glass with a coordinating card made for a friend.

I tried to match the colors used to paint the wine glass to SU! a few of the colors (and DSP) used are retired.
I used the fun Birthday Candles Jumbo Wheel to create the back ground on the Pixie Pink layer. I used paper piecing on both the large ribbon banner and the small banner to add detail. Here's a closer look...
The die cut label was stamped with an image from the new SAB set called You're Lovely, embossed in White EP and then die cut with the coordinating Deco Label Framelits.
I painted the candles with some of the same fun designs shown on the Birthday Candle wheel. I wrote, "it's my birthday and I'll drink if I want to!" around the glass. My friend really liked this set!
The large main image in the Another Great Year set made it easy to create a larger card than I normally make. I wanted it bigger because I put a 4x6 photo on the inside. I didn't photograph the inside because the photo of my friend was very unflattering, yet hilarious and she would kill me if I posted it anywhere! lol She laughed so hard when she opened card and read what I wrote that she was in tears. She said this card was definitely going in her special memory box.

Hi- I have admired your blog and projects for some time. I really love the glass painting you have been doing. Please tell me (us) more about those projects..The paint you use- do you do anything to the glass before painting-etc. Thanks for sharing what you love to do! Kay
